Cook with one of the best chefs ever: Our grandma, Nonna Nerina. She and her sisters will show you how to prepare the perfect pasta—no machines, just your hands, the freshest local ingredients, and love.

You’ll be part of our crazy family for a day and join us as we walk the tiny medieval streets to Grandma’s kitchen, located in the old winepress where my great-grandpa used to make wine that the community tapped straight from the barrel. It's a special place for my family and the entire village.
During the summertime we will take the class outdoor, in the beautiful Roman countryside.

Whenever I sat in my grandma's kitchen growing up, she’d make pasta while sharing memories of her own mom and grandma. I soon realized my generation was missing something important: The handmade pasta techniques and traditions passed down through the ages.

I asked if I could post photos online, to which she replied, “Do what you want, I don’t understand you at all.” Today, she knows what an impact she’s making because people from all over the world come to our home to cook with her, making her very happy.

It was an amazing experience! Nona Angela feels just like home. She makes you feel welcome and very comfortable. It felt like we knew her for the whole life. I'd totally recommend this experience to everyone!

I'm very glad that I was the first guest after COVID, that was blessing. Chiara and Nonna Angela took such a good care of me, I learned how to make a perfect pasta but what is more important, I met fantastic people. If you're not sure if that is for you, I can just say, it is. That was the best part of my trip to Italy. I will be back, for sure, I need to try the winter menu.

This is such a cool thing to do if you're here. I'm from an Italian family in the US and have memories of my grandmother making all kinds of dishes but this was so cool. You don't just do it, you learn it. Highly recommend.

Great day learning pasta making from an expert. We were the last group before quarantine and felt so lucky. Made three types of pasta, had a huge meal eating it all, drank some wine and coffee and shared stories. Definitely a highlight of our quick trip to Rome and highly recommend!

I am a Chef from the USA and this is exactly what I wanted. I specialize in pasta and even I got to learn about how to make pasta by hand. This is definitely more geared towards people who have never made pasta from scratch but it's a fantastic experience none the less.
